Description

Nice old timer from Tavetsch: tan whiteish well crystallized stilbite on matrix. One label is from bohemian mineral dealer Fritz Leitenberger from Leitmeritz, born 1857, died in 1910 (thanks Bernhard! :-) ). The second label is of a type i found more often meanwhile but i can not assign it until now. This label gives the date 11.7.1906. Possibly from Mila valley.
